    Setting up your network

    • Answer
    • View examples of wired and wireless network configurations.

      Example of a network configuration (wired)

      1. Network gateway device such as a DSL modem.

      • The connection method may vary depending on the environment in use. For example, you may be able to connect Ethernet cables directly into the wall outlet in housing complex units that have preinstalled LAN ports. If you are using such a network environment, you do not need a network gateway device.
      • Dial-up Internet is not recommended.

      2. Router.

      • A router is a device that enables multiple devices to be connected to one Internet line. A router is necessary if a PC and a PS3 system will be connected to the Internet at the same time using one Internet connection. A router is not necessary if the DSL or cable modem or other network device has built-in router functionality.

      3. Ethernet cable.
